Saturday, a cowl, Mega Bloks, colds.

Here we are in the house of colds.  Actually David is quite a bit better.  Davey is on antibiotics for an ear infection, but he still has a cough.  I’m starting to cough.  So we are taking it easy today.

Davey has been hanging out with me teaching me the games he makes up with those big Legos.  I looked it up and remembered they are actually Mega Bloks.

He brings me a stack of them and makes up these most complex games in which the rules are everchanging.

I invariably get the rules wrong.  He laughs at me and says things like, “No Mommy, you can’t put a leaf on top of lava!”

(ugh kinda blurry picture, but I wanted to get him in action and there was no time to grab my real camera)

I’m making another “Gap-tastic” Cowl.  It’s in that Heavyweight Knit Picks Gloss again.  That wool/silk blend is just so darn nice to knit with.  I’m getting close to being done with this.

I’m test knitting some Latvian mittens too.  Very fun.  I just learned how to do this loopy fringe for the cuff of the mitten.  I’ve never tried it before.  When I can put up an image, I’ll share how I did this.  There doesn’t seem to be a lot of guidance on the internet that I could find.  The mittens are in beautiful colorwork using 6 colors of yarn. I’ve not done any colorwork in awhile, so that’s fun to get back to as well.

The cowl is the kind of knitting in which I can knit and read at the same time.  So I am reading a book by Tess Gerritsen called The Silent Girl.  The tv show Rizzoli and Isles is based on these books by Gerritsen.  I love a good mystery, and I am enjoying Gerritsen a lot.

And that’s about it for a Saturday in January.
